I’m a programmer by day but I have to admit up front that WordPress has me baffled (I can write JSPs, but I can’t figure out how to put my logo on the left top corner of the page, or change the header’s foreground or background colors, etc.–surely I don’t have to do that in the HTML manually, do I?). After using the FAQ, I still have four basic questions please.
The website URL is
This is not related at all to my day job.
1. In most programs that I use, you can click “Help” and then “About” to find out the version of your software. I don’t see anything like that for WP. How do I know what version I have installed? I did this two weeks ago, so I’m assuming the latest version.
The two following questions are in the context of using the Responsive theme, which I downloaded tonight.
2. When I try to display my site, which is draft, private, I see a header area with the site name, but get a 404 for the content below that. However, there is content on the page. So why does WP still show a 404? The online help I read said this happens if there is no content, but that would not be true in my case.
3. I want an image on the left side of the site name at the top of the page, but I don’t see a way to accomplish this. I don’t see any sort of editor for changing the heading in detailed ways like inserting an image in a specific location. I thought, in fact, that I had inserted an image to the header, which should then show up on every single page, but the image shows only in the page content area in the editor, but of course doesn’t show up on my site, because it gets a 404 instead.
4. I can see text I’m typing in, but how do I get a view that I can edit to move things around on or add things? Clicking has not helped me find that.
